Tank 86 - Behold

"The instrumental fourpiece TANK86 hails from the south of Holland, where they founded in 2005. Their first demo came out as a 3-split with two no longer existing bands, and sold all copies out in no time. This was a sign. The band geared up with a new drummer in the summer of 2007, and worked their way to their first album, the self released 'Behold' which saw the light of day in January 2008 which they are touring and promoting right now.

TANK86 is a pure live band, and they like their verses filled with lyrical great landscapes, riff-fest’s in their choruses, and enjoy pounding monumental big breaks, lacing it all together with odd note groupings and flaky timings. It is all about trying to master being in a band, rocking out, wielding axes and bashing walls of cymbals. Trying to get over spandex and dumb simple electronic beats, to work up a sweat again, like good musicians, and slaughter every last bit of thinking you've had about singers all together.

They’re just flexing muscles, it just started. TANK86 is here to stay. " ~ MySpace

"DeWolff is a three-headed rockmonster that crawled right out of the Mississippimud to shake, rattle and roll the world with some raw, psychedelic sixtiesbluesrock. Armed with a screaming Hammond-organ, a muddy, howling guitar, thunderous drums and a soulful voice, these three Wolf men take you back to those wonderful 60’s and 70’s, when bands like Led Zeppelin, Cream, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple ruled the world of rock ‘n’ roll.

DeWolff was founded in 2007 in a town in the Southern part of the Netherlands (Limburg) called Geleen and consists of Pablo van de Poel, brother Luka van de Poel and Robin Piso. On the 5th of July 2008, DeWolff won the final rounds of Kunstbende. DeWolff was the first band in Kunstbende-history on which the jury had no remarks at all! DeWolff is an absolute live-sensation: their partly-improvised songs sometimes last more than 15 minutes! It’s got style, it plays loud and it plays with soul and passion: that’s DeWolff!" ~ MySpace

The Kings of Frog Island - II

"The UK`s finest purveyors of stoned and enthroned heavy psych rock, The Kings of Frog Island, are about to release the long awaited follow up to their self titled 2005 debut album via Elecktrohasch Records this September.
The Kings Of Frog Island -2 is the second installment of the Kings` epic trilogy following a natural progression through the world of tripped out stoned jams and the explosive anthemic hits set up on the first album moving on into the void and beyond the black.
The second album from Mathew Bethancourt`s (Josiah/Cherry Choke) magnificent side-project is musically similar to the 2005 debut, but the Kings have used a wider range of instrumentation and production transcending the psychedelic space rock anthems of the first amazing album.
If the blues was invented in 2008, it would sound like this! Ten brilliant tracks between blues, gospel, stoner, psych and doom. An outstanding album released as CD and limited hand-numbered edition of 500 LPs on 180gr vinyl." ~ StonerRock.Com

Pressurehed - Sudden Vertigo

"Born in the industrial music scene of Los Angeles, Pressurehed will emerge as the leading voice in the American space-rock universe.
Pressurehed was formed in 1987 in Hollywood (California) by vocalist Tommy Grenas and keyboardist Len Del Rio and for a while produced limited-edition cassettes. The band grew a cult mainly because of its live performances, where they used spectacular gothic/cyberpunk videos and slide projections.

Joined by Belgian bassist Marc Collignon, the duo made their first album, Infadrone. Collignon was replaced by Death Ride 69 guitarist Doran Shelley and Paul Fox of Trash Can School. With help from Helios Creed, the band recorded music for a spoken word album Sphynx by Hawkwind's Nik Turner.

Sudden Vertigo was born out of this line-up. Guitars take over keyboards, thereby resurrecting Chrome's nightmarish maelstroms and directing them into thundering and torrential jams. "

Brainbox - 2

"Brainbox was a Dutch rock group from the late 1960s/early 1970s. It was founded in Amsterdam by guitarist Jan Akkerman, drummer Pierre van der Linden, and singer Kazimir Lux. Their debut single was "Down Man", which established their progressive blues sound. They had several hit singles in the Netherlands, including "Between Alpha and Omega", "Doomsday Train", and "Smile". Soon after they released their first album, Akkerman and van der Linden left the group to join Focus. After van der linden and Akkerman left, Brainbox bass player Cyril Havermans also followed to join Focus, replacing the original Focus bass player. They were replaced by guitarists Herman Meyer and Rudie de Quelijoe and drummer Frans Smit. Meyer was later replaced by John Schuursma. After Kaz Lux left the group in 1971, their popularity waned and they split up in 1972. In 2004 Kaz Lux reassembled the band (though without Jan Akkerman) and they performed in the Netherlands." ~ Bio & Lyrics

Acid Jam - Acid Jam 2

" Before Acid Jam 2 there was, predictably enough, the original Acid Jam. In 1988, Nick Saloman, the one-man epicenter of latter-day British psychedelia (co-boss of Woronzow Records, publisher of The Ptolemaic Terrascope and brains behind The Bevis Frond) herded a hand-picked bunch of collaborators into a converted pigsty near London's Heathrow Airport. After a two-day recording session, Acid Jam was born.

Now, 12 years later, a sequel has finally arrived in the shape of this double CD set. Following a similar modus operandi, Saloman and Bevis Frond cohort (and former Hawklord) Ade Shaw convened a gathering of the extended Woronzow clan in Gold Dust Studios, Bromley. Additionally, contributions were solicited from some old friends and the Woronzow archives were combed for any other material appropriate for inclusion.

The dramatis personae of Acid Jam 2 reads like a who's who of British psychedelia and to trace the musical pedigrees, histories and myriad intersections of the participants would be a gargantuan task best left to rock genealogists of the Pete Frame variety. Suffice it to say that alumni of Hawkwind, Camel, High Tide, and Magic Muscle, as well as members of The Alchemysts, The Lucky Bishops, and the Outskirts of Infinity are among the cast assembled for this album. Even Nick Saloman's daughter sings on one number.

This is an acid rock extravaganza comprising 14 diverse tracks -- equally divided between instrumental and vocal numbers -- with a total running time of nearly two-and-a-half hours. Although the spirit and sound of this recording harken back to another period entirely, at the same time, Saloman and friends -- by some paradoxical sleight of hand -- have created an album that somehow feels wholly contemporary and is completely free of faddish, superficial retro-ism." much more info on PopMatters.Com

Spirit of John Morgan

"Keyboard player and vocalist John Morgan was a Graham Bond afficianado who turned toward psychedelia as the 1960's wore on. Billed originally as The Spirit of John Morgan, the band was successful enough to get booked into the Marquee and other top clubs, and cut three albums. Their self-titled debut into 1969 was followed by two more LPs in 1970 and 1972 (credited simply to John Morgan) for the Carnaby label. He also cut a single for British RCA in the early 1970's. ~ Bruce Eder, All Music Guide" ~ Answers.Com

Stinking Lizaveta

"written in 2006--- After four album releases and 10 years of touring around the country blitzing audiences with their famously dynamic live shows, Philadelphia’s instrumental power trio Stinking Lizaveta (named for a Dostoevsky character) has become an institution of sorts in the US underground music scene. Their eclectic style of music incorporates post-rock, metal, sludge, prog, stoner and doom with jazz stylings and eastern influences. RockDetector's book, 'History of Stoner, Goth, and Doom', categorizes their music as 'doom-jazz', a label that the band have taken to citing when asked to describe their music.

Gunslinger - Earthquake In E Minor

" It was back in 1979 that Alan Davey and Nigel Potter began to structure the sonic wall that would soon become Gunslinger. Their obession with power and flat out rock and roll was begining to take shape. During the early formative years, name change followed name change, but it was when they called their latest incarnation CHAINSAW that the story really begins... It was here that songs like Warhorse, Gunslinger, Night Song and many others came into being. The sound that was to become Gunslinger was born. With influnces from Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Motorhead, Hawkwind and many others, the full on assault was in full flow,' 79 was a great year for power, and the rest is history.....until now!!!

Quantum Fantay

"Once upon a time in a small city called Lokeren ; two crazy friends (Pieter Van den Broeck (Pete Mush) and Wouter De Geest (Jaro)) were once again uniting their musical creativity to end up with a result of Liquid Space Rock(people been in the music business for ages still wonder what that is).The band ’Ozric Tentacles’ is a perfect example.It’s also a big influence for Pete and Jaro.The music makes you higher than high without using any drugs.And with some nice light and laser shows,(which they do very often),a Quantum gig is a show to remember a lifetime...To make the band live breathable and even more interesting the two neighbours attracted back in 2002 drummer Gino Verhaegen,guitarplayer Dario Frodo and flute-player Karel Slabbaert (Charles Sla).Quantum Fantay, a name that came out of a typing error in fantasy was on it’s way to hit the scene..

Test-Site - Self Titled

"Test-Site is lead by guitarist James Potter. Potter has played in some of Milwaukee's heaviest bands. He wielded the lead guitar for the legendary Dr. Shrinker then went along for the ride when Shrinker morphed into the mighty Feck. Feck imploded under their own weight leaving Potter band-less. He even gave up the guitar for a while. Soon the Gods of the Mighty Riff came calling again. He teamed up with Tim Wick on drums (Epsom Blu) and Matt Budda on bass (Ballpoint) to form the crushing Test-Site. The Test-Site sound is like the universes of Dr. Shrinker and Feck colliding in a Big Bang of crushing riff laden mayhem. Sparse harsh vocals pepper the decimated landscape leaving you devastated. Heavy, catchy, powerful and mesmerizing, taking the strength of Metal infusing it with 70's Prog-rock (leaving all the crap out). Throw the influence of Italian horror films and the psych films of Alejandro Jodorowsky into the mix makes Test-Site the powerful entity it is" ~ MySpace

Supergiant - Antares

"In a dutch orange yellow sky fire of fall 2005 amidst an arid dusty high-desert somewhere on planet Earth, four distinct human-born galaxies collided creating colorful heavy musical fusion. Through burning intergalactic wormholes and the vibrations of their infinite minds the sonic waves of SuperGiant came to life bellowing to the darkest spaces within and without. Some say the very Universe lives and breathes through their bodies and sound, that love has brought them to one another and to the world. Others utter that the Sun lends their souls to musical healing and the very energy that connects us all to ourselves and countless other civilizations. As Antares smiles with joy so the bliss shall find all who choose to listen, feel and reveal themselves through groove. In a matter of minimal moments planets have come and gone, stars have lived and died and SuperGiant have become an undeniable force to intergalactic underground rock" ~ Supergiant

The Magnificent Brotherhood Of Eternal Love & The Happiness' Close Companions - 2006 Demo

"The garage rock quartet is certainly THE band from the current vibrating Berlin underground scene who kicks the most ass! Fuzz-guitar, Farfisa-organ, danceable and catchy compositions as well as a huge pinch of freak-out coin the brothers' wild sound. Often hailed as "the saviors of the non-electronic dance party", their music is refreshingly different from the ruling monotony in the current rock scene. In concert THE MAGNIFICENT BROTHERHOOD unleashes an overwhelming energy that leaves no-one dry or motionless! Since they don't rack their brains too much their shows center around party, dancing and having fun which wows a young, well-mixed and colourful audience who goes way beyond the usual rock scene! THE MAGNIFICENT BROTHERHOOD have just released their debut album on CD/LP and they are currently on the road through Europe in order to bring one of their trademark dance concerts to your town… " ~MySpace

Husky - The Sea King

"Husky got together in 2000, just 3 guys who wanted to make some good rock and roll music. We are focused and we have the determination to make our mark on rock and roll. Our power does not come from a front man with pretty hair or the right clothes. It comes from the past, the bluesman at the crossroads, from the bands in the 70’s that realized that fuzzy bass and 13 minute songs were the fuel that would propel rock into the future. Mix all this together and thats where the HuskyRock comes from. Well, that and Miller High Life. And Hostess Chocodiles" ~ MySpace

Review by John Pegoraro (
"For their sophomore album, Charlotte, North Carolina's Husky has come up with a bit of a challenge. See, The Sea King is a concept album (based on “The Sea King” - the largest vessel ever built in Bowdoinham, ME, circa 1877), and Husky is an instrumental band. Even Peter and the Wolf had some narration, and that was more of straightforward yarn.Those willing to invest the time can probably tie the individual tracks together into a cohesive narrative about a big fucking boat that one day sank in New York harbor, but for me, I'm just going to approach The Sea King as an album of songs and nothing more. Compared to their debut, the more landlubber named Circle the Wagons, Husky's certainly expanded their sound. While The Sea King still offers up plenty of dusty, Southern rock jams, there are also traces of straight forward rock (“Flagship”) and electronic fuzz n drone pyschedelia (“Mayans vs Martians,” “Rejoice”). Still, it's the semi-languid, sprawling tracks like “Aboard the Relic,” “Trading on the High Seas,” and “Leeward and Easy” that make The Sea King an impressive follow-up. The band seems most comfortable settling into a steady groove and letting the instruments express themselves. There's not a lot of fancy playing, but there's plenty of deep playing.As with Circle the Wagons, The Sea King seems like one of those albums that's perfect for late night drives on long stretches of highway. It's good music to get lost to, and a fine collection of songs. "

Ataxia - Automatic Writing

" ATAXIA was a band for about two weeks in February 2004. It’s members are Joe Lally of Fugazi, Josh Klinghoffer and John Frusciante. The word ‘Ataxia’ is Greek for ‘disorder’. We were unaware at the time that it also has a meaning in English which is: total or partial inability to coordinate voluntary bodily movements, as in walking. In keeping with our names’ Greek meaning (quite unintentionally), the sections of our songs never had an arranged order. All our songs’ foundations are the bass which always plays one part throughout. The drums and guitar move about and generally use the vocal as their guide. The vocals and words were written, but the order the vocal sections occurred in, and how long the spaces between were, was different every time. So we would all stay on our toes to stay together for dynamics, changes in groove, switches to new sections, etc. We played two shows and recorded two records. The first record was released in August 2004. It was named after the surrealist activity called Automatic Writing. That was where people like Andre Breton and Max Ernst would write words in the form of sentences and paragraphs, but with absolutely no conscious attempt at meaning. They would observe the structure of their subconscious and it’s peculiar methods of organization (or the lack thereof) this way. And if there is one sure answer I can give to the question, “How did you write and record two albums in a week and a half?”, it is that we gave absolutely no thought to what we were doing, whatsoever. This music is unblemished by any expectations of a specific result, on our part. The three of us simply got together to hear what music had to say that week. We had fun together and this is the record of that fun. "- John Frusciante ~ MySpace

"Henry Frayne, the guitarist who records under the nom de musique Lanterna, is slowly rewriting the rule book on instrumental rock, although calling his music "rock" doesn't really do him justice. In Frayne's music, you can hear bits of John Fahey's American Primitive Guitar -- flurries of rippling arpeggios, rich ringing chord clusters and long, sustained single notes that hang in the air buzzing like fat, happy bumblebees. There are also hints of Michael Brook's world-music influenced minimalism, a bit of new wave pop and an eerie drone that harks back to both Eno's first post-Roxy experiments with ambient music and Joy Division's dark synthesizer-accented dirges.

Floorian - What the Buzzing

"Floorian is a seductively spellbinding band from O-high-o. Exploring the realms of psychedelia, space rock and experimentalism, Floorian has conjured its own unique style of darkly melodic, hypnotic drone rock. While not easy to describe, these excursions are very easy to space out to, filled with mind-stretching sounds and textures... yet they also spend a considerable amount of time rocking out. The critics rave -- Matt Shimmer said: "While some songs are predominately atmospheric and soundscapey, the focus rests on a strong rock and pop influence that Floorian pulls off wonderfully. "Symptoms Alone" is a nine-minute epic of intergalactic folk-rock, like what you'd get if you shot Yo La Tengo even further into the depths of space. "Auravine," meanwhile, focuses more on drones, making great use of a wavering bassline, a sparse beat, and some echoing, atmospheric sounds in the background. Filled with amazing solos, galactic atmospheres, and catchy, all-enveloping bouts of rock, this is one of the best psychedelic records of the year." And Matt Howarth digs it too: "Dreamy guitars waft in the air, squealing, grinding, defining astral chords with tasty ease... these stringed manipulations achieve a transcendental disposition, building from a nebulous fog to screeching outcries, further elaborated by lead guitars that seek quite foreign sonic territories with their languid sustains and bent notes... alternating between psychedelic stylings and gothic darkness, conjuring melancholia that then strives to escape the box with emotional exertions. There's a romantic edge in this music, bestowing this spacerock with more than a touch of humanity, making the tunes more accessible." ~ MySpace

Spaceship Landing - Self Titled

Review by Erik on Lords Of Metal:
Not again a German band discovering the seventies. So with a loaded heart I got this CD in the player, looked through the booklet and did some google-ing (is this a verb?). The instrumentaria are impressive, just take a look at
But most impressive on this CD is the wideness and the hugeness of the sound! Vocals are of minor importance and are put in irregular, like an additional instrument really. Listen to '1x Im Princip', where the singeing is actually…laughing! But the keyboards/organ is the instrument to listen for! It fills up every hole there is with bleeps and spacecraft sounds, just awesomely done! They like heavy bands and intro's like in ''Black Taxi' and they sometimes steal a riff like the Cream riff in 'Pann Backer', but who cares?!?! The longer songs are merely a fraction away from being superb, and if you like Cream, Clapton, Deep Purple or Kyuss you will love this seventies inspired, psychedelic feeling slow rock. I am very enthusiastic about this band! Great CD!

Südstern 44

Südstern 44 - The Dampfwalze

This is a 70-minute-long, psychedelic jam session featuring members of Zone Six and Weltraumstaunen. This CD-R really has only one, really long track of improvised music played with two guitars, bass and drums recorded in 2004. The track begins with a really psychedelic, laid-back and bubbling delay guitar that soon changes into heavy psych/acid guitar jam feast. The musicians jam very tightly without any sing of getting tired or bored and the end result sounds at times like a cross-breeding of Bevis Frond and Marble Sheep. Occasionally I’m also reminded of the rehearsal jams of Dark Sun… The atmosphere is rather 70’s styled, I think. This is really hard stuff, until the track cools down somewhere in the middle. Then they go with full power again, and I guess stoner fans could like this too. The very end is also peaceful, psychedelic delay guitar stuff that fits well after this otherwise rather raw jamming. Although the music was recorded with just a little stereo mike, the sound quality is totally OK, and Dave Schmidt has done a good job editing the whole thing. I’m looking forward to the band’s actual debut album that should be out on Nasoni this autumn.16.10.06 by Dj Astro at Psychotropic Zone


Südstern 44 - Südstern

Südstern 44 is one of Dave Schmidt’s bands and this time he plays drums as well as synthesiser. The band features his band mates from Zone Six and other old bands (Growing Seeds, Weltraumstaunen). Prior to this, they have released one instrumental jam CD-R on Dave’s own Sulatron Records so this is the first official CD release. The band’s music isn’t just as psychedelic as some of the other stuff Dave does, but this high-quality studio album works and rocks extremely well.The mid-tempo psych rocker ”Panorama Spaceship” starts the album and the female bassist/singer Ellipopelli’s sedate and effected vocals fit in perfectly. It’s a pretty hypnotic track that has a more melodic chorus and some great guitar soloing. Works very well! The slower, a bit mystical “Mindfuck” comes next and again they go in a hypnotic style. This is a marvellous track in 5/4 time. The going is pretty monotonic and gets heavier occasionally. Before eight minutes have passed the track gets rather fierce and some discords and chaos follows. ”Kauderwelsch Maschine” begins with a narration in German and after that is rather fast rocking spiced with djembe. Some psychedelic, instrumental jamming comes next and there’s some more narration in the middle. “Südsee” has at first some sounds of waves and peaceful but hypnotic guitar. The comp joins in and the track grows gradually along with the psych sounds. The vocals on this number are just whispering which creates a special atmosphere. After three minutes the going breaks free and we hear some guitar soloing. There’s some more whispering in the middle. A very nice, dreamy and mid-tempo track. The album ends with the 14-minute-long ”Freischwimmer” that is excellent jamming. I really like the space sounds on this one! It’s a rather up-tempo instrumental, although it cools down after seven minutes. After ten minutes it grows again and there’s some more soloing in the end.This truly is a superb album and also the sound quality is excellent. The music is a little less far-out than for example the music of Zone Six, but this still works out great as tripping music! Absolutely worth getting if you’re interested in new German psychedelic post-rock.

Clark Hutchinson - Discography

"Andy Clark and Mick Hutchinson recorded four semi-legendary LPs of drug/scatter/raga-blues between 1969 and 1971. Mick Hutchinson was -- and still is -- a gifted guitarist who had began his career playing Indian style music with the tabla expert Sam Gopal. Although he never recorded with Sam Gopal's Dream -- a young guitarist named Lemmy eventually fulfilled this role -- Hutchinson and Gopal played together at the legendary 14 hour Technicolour Dream at London's Alexandra Palace in April of 1967. Later, he teamed up with the multi-instrumentalist Andy Clark. They both played a variety of instruments and this abundance of talent was brought to bear on the extraordinary two man album A=MH² which they recorded during two hectic 12 hour sessions in 1969 ...

The Giant Hogweed Orchestra - Self Titled

"In case you’re wondering, neither the band’s name nor their music bear any relation to GENESIS. This all-instrumental Finnish quintet produces highly guitar-dominated material that has the fluidity of PINK FLOYD, the intensity of PORCUPINE TREE and the obsessive rhythmics of OZRIC TENTACLES. The band, who uses no synthesizer whatsoever, consists of two electric guitarists (Antti Aalto and Mika Muinonen), a bassist (Turo Sinkkonen), a drummer (Jaako Kakko) and a flute player (Jyri Traskelin). Some of them contribute acoustic guitar and piano whereas additional guests supply bits of mellotron and trumpet on their only album to date.
Their one (eponymous) album is a combination of symphonic space rock and art rock with hints of jazz fusion and space metal. Over the three epic pieces that dominate the 6-track album, the twin guitars soar, duel and strike with amazing firepower, challenging each other as well as the flute, bass and drums; the music can also be very melodic and flow most beautifully. The rhythm section, produced to perfection, sounds crisp and solid, but it’s the guitar work that takes center stage and will delight fans of early HACKETT, early WISHBONE ASH and DJAM KARET alike. A brilliant piece through and through.
Highly recommended to anyone into classic symphonic space rock." ~

The Devil And The Sea - Heart vs. Spine

The Daily News - Pittsburgh, PAFebruary 12th, 2008
Formed from members of Icepick Revival and Collapsar, the Devil and the Sea’s “Heart vs. Spine” is a long, sludgy, grimy, doom-minded slab of death that just might violently force itself into your collection before Mastodon and Unsane (because you have to do this alphabetically) on your future-minded, I-can’t-really-describe-this-to-actual-people metal shelf. You have one of those, right? Ten-minute opener “Batwing” speeds up and slows down so many times, it’s enough to unload the contents of your stomach. “Monolith” and “Tea Pinky” cut the running time nearly in half, but it just means they have a smaller hole in which to jam their savagery. The epic title track pushes 15 minutes but never seems as long, and 17-minute closer “Abra Cadaver” cannot even be classified as actual music — it’s a raging, boiling cauldron of feedback foam, guitar crunch, and relentless, throat-gauged ranting that only serves the purpose of ridding their hearts of blackness so that they can fill them up again.

Incredible Expanding Mindfuck - I.E.M.

"The Incredible Expanding Mindfuck is an occasional Steven Wilson project, in which Steven produces psychedelic experimental music inspired by material from the '60s, '70s and beyond (particularly the Krautrock of Neu!, Can and Faust, post-rock, Frank Zappa and the cosmic jazz of artists like Sun Ra). The music is a mixture of motorik grooves, textures, speech cut-ups, scientific psychedelia and organic dreamscapes." ~ No-Man

Phafner - Overdrive

This band formed in Marshalltown, Iowa in 1969 playing a form of hard-edged, drug-induced rock'n'roll. Their album was recorded in a basement studio in 1971 and just 50 copies were pressed on the Dragon label. Overdrive features some pretty fine and varied guitar work. The opening cut, Plea From The Soul, has lots of fuzz and mouth harp; Uncle Jerry and Rock n Roll Man feature breckneck guitar work whilst by contrast Whiskey Took My Woman is slower and bluesy. ~ Last.Fm

Architectural Metaphor - Odysseum Galacti

They are a three (now four) piece space rock band from the west of Massachusetts. Sometimes described as the best Krautrock band in the US, their sound and name are linked. The name,thought of by founding member and keyboardist Paul Eggleston, comes out of the way the band composes songs through jam sessions. "Our music is constantly improvisational. It turns into something eventually, like architecture. It's sort of a psychedelic process". The band usually performs one or two covers in their sets,by bands that they have obviously been influenced by such as Hawkwind, Roxy Music, King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Tangerine Dream. The band's sound used to be very heavy on the synthesizers with the guitar laying down a spacey wave through the music as opposed to a standard song riff, with the songs free flowing in space. The only words were the occassional poem. The freeform lineup varied from 4-6 members and recorded the bulk of Odysseum Galacti before paring down to a trio in 92. ~ (more info on MySpace)

The Kings Of Frog Island - Self Titled

" THE KINGS OF FROG ISLAND crash landed the game during the summer heat of 2003. Mark Buteaux (Guitars) and Dodge Watson (Percussions) had laid down three or four open ended grooves together at Amphibia Sound just for the hell of it. Enter Josiah front man Mat Bethancourt (Guitars, Vocals and Bass) to work on some demo recordings with Mark, The Kings Of Frog Island are born. Drawing on a collective passion for cult movie soundtracks and mammoth riffs the Kings had some high times making this, their eponymous debut album. Stashed full of heavy psych rock and fragile laments to love, life and the eternal sleep. This album is truly a rollercoaster ride across the mountains of madness, beyond the beyond to the shores of Frog Island and the gates of Amphibia. Come take a trip……….." ~MySpace

Graveyard - Self Titled

"One listen to the self-titled debut from Sweden's Graveyard and you swear that this thing was recorded in 1971. Psychedelic, often times bluesy yet heavy guitar riffs, enchanting atmosphere, swirling drum patterns, and hazy vocals, all permeate this wildly seductive hard rock album. Think Cream, Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer, The Doors, Pentagram, Grand Funk Railroad, or newer acts like Witchcraft, Gentleman's Pistols, and Danzig. Produced by Don Ahlsterberg, who did a fantastic job of really honing in on a classic vibe here, Graveyard just drips with psychedelic menace from start to finish, and everything from the guitar riffs to the vocals is so retro 70's that you gotta love it. Hard to pick highlight tracks here as all of them are enjoyable in their own right, but the Jim Morrison meets Ozzy bluesy strut of "Right Is Wrong", the haunting doom of "Satan's Finest", "Evil Ways" (featuring some wicked wah-wah guitar solos), and "Blue Soul", or the out-and-out stunning hard rock of "Thin Line", "Submarine Blues", and "Lost in Confusion" all warrant your immediate attention." ~ Sea of Tranquility

Charlie & Esdor - Charlie & Esdor

Formed through the combo of Edmund "Charlie" Franzen and Esdor Jensen.The group was part of the incredibly productive Swedish psychedelic scene. They began playing together with a few friends in a band that never materialized, recorded several singles and almost enough material for an album that was never formally released. Heavy acid guitar rock with a pounding backbeat and sitar galore. If you have any interest in Dungen, you can really see hear that sound as it existed in its own time. The folkier raga tracks stand up but it's the heavy guitar oriented ones that really propel this into essential territory ~ Last.Fm
